Default Character Encoding

On all of my recent installs the default Java File encoding is getting set to ASCII

On my test box the default is UTF8 – which is what I want, and which according to all the documentation I have found is what CF should be using by default.

There are no –D options being added anywhere to override on the test box.  The LANG and all the LOCALE settings are all identical on all boxes (UTF8 settings)

I am not finding anything that should be causing CF/Java to pick up ASCII.  From what I can tell the OS is using UTF8 - I am out of ideas of why Java thinks it should pick up ASCII

I am on Red Hat 6 – CF 11 patched up to HF7 – 64 bit.  CF - using the default Java that come with it: 1.7.0_51 

Any ideas of where else to look?
